 The first priority for comprehensively refining a math program, Andrew says, must be to establish a reflective, collaborative, and professional culture at your school. What obstacles to establishing this culture do you anticipate encountering where you teach? What specific strategies from this lesson could help? How could you be instrumental in implementing them?
 How was your own educational experience different from the one you are cultivating in your school? If it was very different, have you found it difficult to adjust as you learn new teaching methods and ideas? How has finding ways to modify your own educational approach helped you assisting parents new to the system?
 What international best practices or teaching reform protocols most appeal to you? Describe any experiences you have had with them, either in workshops or in professional practice. Which would work best at your school, and how can you work to reproduce them more fully there?
 What are some ways you can promote your school’s “math nerd” culture? What activities or clubs can you launch to bring “recreational mathematics” to the notice of more students?
